Puppy Teeth/Adult Teeth Growing on Top Problem?
So Heidi had some blood in her mouth yesterday, and I figured it was from a tooth coming out, but figured I'd check anyway. I noticed a gap where a tooth had been, but more disturbingly, noticed that both of her large canines are erupting, but the baby teeth aren't falling out.
I'm concerned because I've read if they don't fall out, they will cause the adult teeth to erupt in the wrong spots, which can cause a considerable amount of pain. I guess we'll have to go to the vet on Monday, but I'm worried about having to put her under if that will be required?
This puppy is the reason you should have an emergency fund, she is going to bankrupt us.
